Engaging hearts and minds


Powerful writing and audience-focused content engage hearts and minds. Over two decades in communications, writing, editing, and strategy development, I’ve served as staff member, consultant, volunteer, and board director.

The son of a Chicago investigative journalist and press secretary, I grew up in the press room, engaged in robust dinner table debates, and falling asleep to the sound of a manual typewriter. This instilled in me curiosity, a desire for work with a purpose, and a love of good writing and compelling communications.
